Very good, helpful staff. Debbie and Paul Bullet are great.
Phillip Mann Estate Agents are great to work with, Matt in particular is a fantastic negotiator and sales progressor and always sees his sales right through to the end, Nick is lovely to work with and always a joy to speak to as is Paul. If you are looking for an agent that will go above and beyond I would recommend any of the Phillip Mann offices!
Fox and Sons got off to a slow start with a difficult sale, having been brought in to help after several offers had fallen through via a competitor estate agent, at the start there appeared to be very little activity. However, just as I was starting to lose faith, they brought in 2 viewings, both of whom offered, one of which was above the asking price. From then on, their service was spot on. They were able to keep pressure on the various parts of the chain and saw the sale through to a happy conclusion. I was impressed with the level of communication and keeping me informed each step of the way, so thanks to both Lewis Austin and Danielle Mann, I now sit happy in my new home.
Fox & Sons achieved a sale for us within a month of going on the market and at a difficult time of year. We cannot fault their care and attention, Josh has a great team. Megan was a real dynamo in seeing us through a challenging and unnecessarily difficult chain. I recommend them most highly.
I recently sold my house through King and Chasemore Newhaven. I was advised and guided by Liz Waller. I have to say she was amazing. She kept me informed throughout the process and was always in hand to deal or advise with any questions that arose. When the buyers asked for certain reports Liz was helpful in arranging them. Moving house is a stressful time whether you are buying or selling and Liz was very supportive which made the process less stressful. I would recommend King and Chasemore as the agent to market your property.
I popped in to the office on the off chance as I was passing, I had previously Let my property through two other agents locally one an independant with a good reputation the other a bigger company with more offices. Both failed to deliver on their promises, neither doing inspections or managing my property correctly. I was going to let my property out privately until I spoke with Ben Ruth, he immedieately made me feel at ease, won back my trust and has given me an excellent service as has his colleague Thomas Jay I cannot recommend them highly enough i will be conducting much more business with them in future.
This review is based on my experience from 2012 (didn't know Google allowed reviews hence delay).
Back in 2013 I had a property in Roderick avenue that I had listed with this estate agents and was longing to move back to my family over othersidr of Brighton.. Well I put my property on the market about October 2013 and after speaking with a guy called Mark about the plan of sale I headed forward with the proposal..
After three months I ended up ripping up my contract with cubitt and west and kicking them out of the sale because I never got any updates, I never got any feedback and was left wondering when and IF I will ever A, get a viewer Or B, get a possible offer.. Well I had only one person view my property.. I think because they didn't show it as right for them I was just filed away.. I may not have had a mansion or a property that is worth hundreds in commission but surely a sale is a sale regardless..
Having been totally neglected by this estate agents and completely ignored.. I tried calling them and calls would be told would be returned and never were, I was told that fresh photos would be taken to see how we can get things going forward.. Never happened.. I had not much in savings at the time so as knew photos would be taken I spent my savings to redecorate the entire flat...
Was a waste of time and effort as nothing occured.. Well thankfully I ended up returning the for sale board and re assigned a contract with king and chase more opposite who got me a sale after two weeks and a completion date 12 weeks after sale.
Based on this experience I have vowed in life to A, never consider viewing a property ever that is selling through cubitt and west (even if they change agents) and B, never buy a property through this agent...
Now let's go onto how I obtained the property.. Back in 2010 I saw my property advertised in the window and enquired about it. I explained my predicament about my ex landlord being repossessed and I had savings in place and spoke with an advisor here who carried out a viewing and I agreed to offer a price I was assigned a solicitors known as Blakemores solicitors (who are now struck off) and I have never visioned being homeless but for two to three months of my life thanks to being recommended a pointless waste of space solicitor by cubitt and west, I ended up being homeless sofa hopping etc..
It was the worst experience I have ever encountered in life.. Only reason I went with them for sale was because at the time I saw more sold boards than the rest..
